-Doody's Medical Reviews
"Teaching writing is the biggest challenge when teaching these courses including the mechanics of writing and how to organize...manuscripts. Manuscript writing is so much different than writing a paper for a grade. Students don't always appreciate the amount of time and attention to detail that a manuscript takes. This book is] excellent. Gives the students a broad overview of writing yet includes specifics, such as how to create tables."
-Kimberly Whiteman, DNP, MSN
